The Liberace Foundation has unanimously chosen the Las Vegas office of Leo A. Daly to translate the virtuosity of a Liberace performance into built form. The firm's entertainment and gaming specialist, architect Francis (Frank) Xavier Dumont, will oversee the redesign of the Liberace Museum, a non-profit institution that celebrates the legacy of "Mr. Showmanship" and supports the work of the Liberace Foundation for the Performing and Creative Arts. Lively, flamboyant, and dramatic, Dumont's design for the new museum provides a contemporary, interactive environment that will appeal to a new generation of Liberace fans. The museum's exhibition space will be increased to 21,000 sq. ft. and an outdoor entertainment plaza and café will be added to the program. The project will be completed in late summer of 2001.
